Sweaty Betty

Baby, it’s cold outside, but that’s not stopping us from getting in our workouts at home. We’ve recently had our eyes on London-based Sweaty Betty, a line of stylish women’s athleisure and outer wear.

Ready to break a sweat or simply lounge in comfort? Sweaty Betty’s even got a dedicated ski & snowboard collection, offering base layers, outwear, accessories and après ski comfort pieces in a range of patterns and cool styles.

Founder/creative director Tamara Hill-Norton recognizes the importance of the gender pay gap and supports women by hiring a nearly all-female staff (99% female, 1% male employees). Girl power indeed!

Out of the vast selection of workout and yoga gear, we selected two items to showcase here for gifting, winter workout inspo or chillaxing by the fire this winter with a cup of hot cocoa.

Escape Luxe Hoodie

Escape Luxe Hoodie

Sweaty Betty’s Escape Luxe Hoodie is almost too fancy to sweat in!

Made in Italy from a 45% recycled cotton blend (created from fabric off-cuts), the most eye-catching element of this soft fleece hoodie is the split hem, creating a shapely bottom to compliment leggings, jeans and skirts.

The loose-fitting style has a deep arm cuff with thumb holes to protect the tops of your hands in colder weather and is insulated to wick moisture from your body’s sweat to keep you dry. There’s also a cropped version of the Escape Luxe Hoodie if you’re looking for a shorter style. I definitely plan on wearing this one post-workout or on cold morning power walks.

I’ve not yet owned a top with this type of hem and I must admit, it’s a very flattering look as it drapes nicely over my new 7/8-length leggings.

And the eyelets, drawstring tips and logo in the Beetle Blue are all in rose gold!

The Escape Luxe Hoodie also comes in Black Cherry, Beetle Blue, Velvet Rose and Black in sizes XXS to XL; USD $165/CAD $227.47 (Nordstrom Canada)

Sweaty Betty 7/8 Power Leggings

Power 7/8 Workout Leggings

The Power 7/8 Workout Leggings are super comfy and keep their form when walking, jogging, stretching and cycling. These have got to be one of the company’s most popular items, especially given the cool range of prints (and solids) they come in.

Sweaty Betty-3

Handy elements include a secret rear zipped section and a deep side pocket just below the waistband, perfect for stowing earbuds, cash or ID and credit cards.

7/8 Power Leggings

The bum-sculpting, stretchy fabric is sweat-wicking and quick-drying with reinforced, flattering seams in key areas.

Sweaty Betty-9

The adjustable, looped drawstring is an advantage over the open drawstring (that can sometimes get lost inside the waistband during washing). Inseam is 60cm/24”.

Sweaty Betty-10

These leggings are available in various cool colours and patterns, sized XXS to XL; USD $100/CAD $137.86 (Nordstrom Canada)

Sweaty Betty-8

Their latest brick-and-mortar location just opened in Hong Kong. Elsewhere, Sweaty Betty attire is available globally online, across the US at various Sweaty Betty boutiques, at Nordstrom and in Canada, at Nordstrom and Shopstyle.ca. Their own website offers free standard shipping and included duty charges.
